Friday Night Lies
During a campaign stop in Athens, Ohio, on Saturday September 8, Vice President Joe Biden said the last time he was in the town, playing against the Ohio University football team on October 19, 1963, he almost got arrested for walking into a girls dormitory.
Its a good story. Its just not true
Shawn at Free Republic discovered that Joe Biden did not play football at the University of Delaware in 1961, 1962, 1963, or 1964, according to past yearbooks.
The 1984 University of Delaware yearbook included an interview with Joe Biden. Its Biden first ever interview were he talks about his triple major (later during Bidens 1988 presidential campaign he admitted he lied and had two majors, not three) and playing intramural football (flag football). There is no mention about him playing college football.
Page 324 of 1984 year book
In the University of Delawares online news service, UDaily, Biden wrote this in which he is the sole source (so take it with a grain of salt):
Joe Biden once said he came to the University of Delaware in 1961 as a half-baked halfback, playing on the freshman football team that year under the late Scotty Duncan, and the Democratic vice presidential candidate remains a big fan of the Fightin Blue Hens.
But even this account is doubtful because on page 162 in the sports section of Delaware Universitys 1961 yearbook, Biden is not listed on the freshman football teams roster.
Joe Biden said he played football at the University of Delaware and that he almost got arrested after a game in Ohio.
Its just not true.
Tony Lee at Breitbart wrote more on The Fibber.
What the hell was he playing? The "Jeopardy" home game?
Truth or Dare.
He always chose Dare.
Thanks for posting!
Alcohol-induced dementia. Joe can’t help himself.
Maybe Neil Kinnock was on the team?
Maybe he was working “the chains” on the sideline.
Maybe a guy that speaks like Kinnock.
Joe Biden, “I mean what I say!”
Joe’s football career:
i.e. pick-up game on the quadrangle
Maybe he played on the Sandusky deep cover low down lying scum squad....
Obama mucho Mentiroso
He obviously played without a helmet.
“and that’s a fact!”
Stand Up Chuck! (just not to the truth)
We had a FReeper who uncovered this a few days ago. Can’t remember the screen name.......but deserves the credit. Said that “Crazy Uncle Joe” only played FLAG football.
Joe Biden lied??? I am shocked, SHOCKED I tell you.
Hey! Go easy here! Sometimes, a guy will turn real fast and that flag can snap you and it really hurts. It might even leave a red spot.
